Hindu organisations like the Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP) and Bajrang Dal have begun massive agitation against the 24 News Malayalam channel for peddling fake news against the Sabarimala temple. Earlier, 24 News had given fake news about the customs of Sabarimala temple, quoting from the fake documents provided by Monson Mavungal. VHP and Bajrang Dal organised a protest march to the Alappuzha bureau of 24 News.
Earlier, the VHP had demanded an apology from 24 News for trying to break Hindu unity and giving fake news against the Holy Sabarimala temple.
At the time when the Kerala government ruled by CPIM tried to break the customs in Sabarimala, 24 News had tried to divide the Hindus, who were leading massive protests against the state government.
